Snort rule update for Sept. 10, 2020

Cisco Talos released a new SNORTⓇ rule set yesterday. Our apologies, as this blog post is going up a day late. 

The latest update includes 14 new rules.

Thursday's release included new protections against some notable malware families, including the Delf downloader, which was recently part of a spam campaign in Spain. There are also two rules targeting the DarkSide ransomware, which recently debuted using several professional techniques to give the group a more formal appearance.

There were no changes made to the snort.conf in this release.
